The Bobby Fuller Four

With his blatant reverence for Buddy Holly, fellow Texan Bobby Fuller was a bit of an anomaly in the mid-'60s. With his Stratocaster guitar and brash, full sound, at his best Fuller sounded like Holly might have had he survived into the '60s. Cracking the Top 30 in 1966 with a cover of Holly's "Love's Made a Fool of You" and the Top Ten with "I Fought the Law" (written by one-time Cricket Sonny Curtis), Fuller had just become a star when he died in mysterious circumstances in a parked car in Hollywood (the police thought it was a suicide, just about everyone who knew him disagreed). Fuller's relatively short period of national stardom actually crowned a good half-dozen years of recording, during which he released many outstanding tracks. After a few local singles in his hometown of El Paso in the early '60s, he moved to California with his combo in 1964, and briefly had aspirations of playing surf music before hooking up with producer Bob Keene. In the short time he recorded for Mustang in 1965 and 1966, he waxed quite a few tracks (most self-penned) in addition to his hits, including "Let Her Dance," "Another Sad and Lonely Night," "My True Love," "Never to Be Forgotten," "Fool of Love," and "The Magic Touch." Rocking, tuneful, and infectiously joyous, they showed Fuller to be a worthy inheritor of early rock & roll and rockabilly traditions without sounding self-consciously revivalist. While it's hard to imagine Fuller maintaining his success in the era of psychedelia, he no doubt would have gone on to produce interesting work. A talented and prolific songwriter and a studio whiz who drew from Eddie Cochran and (though only slightly) the full guitar sound of the British Invasion as well as Buddy Holly, he recorded a great deal of unreleased studio and live material that was issued in the '80s, when the depth of his loss began to be appreciated. ~ Richie Unterberger

Bobby got messed up with a shady record label who did a lot of ripping off from his clients-The E-Types, The Chocolate Watchband, among others. The entire investigatio n was a joke.

What a tune maker makes me so happy, thank you. Rest in heaven, Bobby Fuller.

If Frank had him killed he should have been dug up and shot in the head!

A long time ago someone from Music City told me that Bobby Fuller had dated Mia Farrow, and that this led to displeasure on Frank Sinatra's part. Anyway, I FOUGHT THE LAW is, yes, repetitious, but also, groovy, infectious.. . .

Loss of talent, whatever the circumstance s , is a loss for all of us - whether we realize it, nor not. Bobby, you were quite a great talent. We feel your loss all these years later. 01/19/10

Sorry to hear that Bobby died so young; the same as Buddy Holly, whom he emulated.

"I fought the Law" is a rare gem, very much associated with the entire decade of the sixties. Most of us had no idea who performed the song, but cherishing it along with Beatles, Stones, Beach Boys and other groups from that era.
